this will output similar to this:

 ./newmeth.sh msn.com
Subdomain: msn
Prefix:
Domain: com
[ Url: msn.com ] : : GET - Code: HTTP/2 301
[ Url: msn.com ] : : HEAD - Code: HTTP/2 301
[ Url: msn.com ] : : POST - Code: HTTP/2 411
[ Url: msn.com ] : : PUT - Code: HTTP/2 411
[ Url: msn.com ] : : DELETE - Code: HTTP/2 301
[ Url: msn.com ] : : CONNECT - Code:
[ Url: msn.com ] : : OPTIONS - Code: HTTP/2 301
[ Url: msn.com ] : : TRACE - Code: HTTP/2 301
[ Url: msn.com ] : : PATCH - Code: HTTP/2 301
[ Url: www.msn.com ] : : GET - Code: HTTP/2 200
[ Url: www.msn.com ] : : HEAD - Code: HTTP/2 404
[ Url: www.msn.com ] : : POST - Code: HTTP/2 411
[ Url: www.msn.com ] : : PUT - Code: HTTP/2 411
[ Url: www.msn.com ] : : DELETE - Code: HTTP/2 405
[ Url: www.msn.com ] : : CONNECT - Code:
[ Url: www.msn.com ] : : OPTIONS - Code: HTTP/2 405
[ Url: www.msn.com ] : : TRACE - Code: HTTP/2 405
[ Url: www.msn.com ] : : PATCH - Code: HTTP/2 405

I dont need to explain why this is of value. here is the code i wrote in bash:

no dependencies required:

!/bin/bash

# Define an array of valid remote web server methods
METHODS=("GET" "HEAD" "POST" "PUT" "DELETE" "CONNECT" "OPTIONS" "TRACE" "PATCH")

splitDomain() {
local input="$1"

# Remove http(s) if present
input="${input#http://}"
input="${input#https://}"

# Remove www prefix
if [[ "$input" == www.* ]]; then
prefix="www"
domain="${input#www.}"
subdomain=""
else
# Split into subdomain and domain
IFS='.' read -ra parts <<< "$input"
subdomain="${parts[0]}"
prefix=""
domain=""
for ((i=1; i<${#parts[@]}; i++)); do
if [ -n "$domain" ]; then
domain+="${parts[i]}."
else
domain="${parts[i]}."
fi
done
domain="${domain%.}"
fi

echo "Subdomain: $subdomain"
echo "Prefix: $prefix"
echo "Domain: $domain"
}

# Check if an argument is provided
if [ $# -ne 1 ]; then
echo "Usage: $0 <domain_or_subdomain>"
exit 1
fi

# Call the splitDomain function with the provided domain/subdomain
splitDomain "$1"



# Function to make curl requests and output the first line of response
curlCall() {
local url="$1"
for method in "${METHODS[@]}"; do
response=$(curl -Is -k -X "$method" "https://$url" | head -n 1)
echo "[ Url: $url ] : : $method - Code: $response"
done
}

# Check if an argument is provided
if [ $# -ne 1 ]; then
echo "Usage: $0 <target_url>"
exit 1
fi

# Call the curlCall function with the provided target URL
curlCall "$1"
curlCall "www.$1"

Im open to any feedback
